Actions! 2.4.-2.10.2019

Skip the State of the Union Address. Make your three calls each day.

ACTIONS
Before you do anything else,
please use our Phone Scripts 2.4.-2.10.2019 to call our Members of Congress.

Now until April 2
Comment here about the current administration’s efforts to decrease funding for supplemental nutrition (SNAP). We cannot look away for even a moment - the damage being done is too great.

Read the bill, act on the bill
HR1,
which the Sen. Majority Leader called a thinly veiled attempt to get more Democrats to vote, is up for discussion. Here’s a link to the bill. If you agree that this would strengthen our democracy, call your MoC. (Indivisible national has some positive words for this legislation.)

HR8, sponsored by our own Rep. Mike Thompson, would implement improved background checks for gun ownership. The first hearing on this bill is scheduled for Feb. 8. If you cannot be in DC, make certain you read and react to the bill. Our MoCs need to hear from you. (Link to the bill.)

February 5
Democratic Rebuttal to the SOTU

Tuesday, February 5, 2019
About 6:30 pm (keep the mute on until you are certain the SOTU is over)

Your home or your local watch party!

Skip the State of the Union Address (you can watch Nancy show patience in all the news broadcasts later). But tune in to hear Stacey Abrams give her rebuttal - and our own Attorney General Xavier Becerra give his rebuttal in Spanish!


SCRIPTS
Make your phone calls.

Let’s thank our Members of Congress for standing firm in the face of the president’s blackmail. And let’s urge Congress to not allow this to ever happen again. It’s time to pass legislation that prevents government shutdowns - and to support the Green New Deal!

Isn’t it time you called? Make your calls now!
Please use our Phone Scripts 2.4.-2.10.2019
